‘Pets Saving Pets Lives’
Another exciting new feature to the 2018 Pet Lover Show is the Blood Services Department at the Animal Emergency Clinic of the Fraser Valley.

The Blood Services Department at the Animal Emergency Clinic of the Fraser Valley work to make the donation and volunteer experience as fun as possible for both the donors and their owners; at the end of each donation, your furry friend is given a can of food (if their diet permits) and you are sent a gift card as a token of thanks after each donation as well.
For the first year, former Canadian Idol finalist, and award-winning multi-instrumentalist, Andy Sloniowski will offer to make your beloved pet the unforgettable legend they deserve with customized Pet Anthems. If you want to celebrate, mourn or honour your best friend, Andy will work to create an entirely unique theme song that matches your pet’s personality.
Back for the second year, the world-famous DockDogs will be on display at the Pet Lover Show for your pooch!
